An hour’s drive from Kununurra is the most northerly town and harbour of Western Australia, Wyndham.
The entrance to the town is dominated by an 18 metre long, three metre high sculpture of a saltwater crocodile. As you’d expect, the town is known as the home of the ‘big croc’, a name which also reflects the number of crocodiles in the Cambridge Gulf and other waters in the area.
The small frontier town was established in 1886 on the tidal banks of the Cambridge Gulf at the base of Mount Bastion. At the mount’s summit, over 330 metres above sea level, the fantastic Five Rivers Lookout allows you to view the paths of the King, Pentecost, Durack, Forrest and Ord Rivers. The lookout also overlooks the town and port, crocodile park and tidal marshlands.
Great fishing is available throughout the year in the waters around Wyndham. Famous barramundi are plentiful in King and Pentecost Rivers, or try your luck at a waterhole further inland.
Wyndham is the northern gateway to the Gibb River Road, Kalumburu and Derby. Some of the main attractions include the largest crocodile in captivity, a giant boab tree, The Grotto, a Prison Tree, a bird sanctuary and a crocodile park featuring the endangered Komodo dragons from Indonesia.
